Gas from Norway’s High North: Bringing Energy Security and Opportunities to Europe

A conversation with:
H.E. Tord Lien
Minister of Petroleum and Energy
Kingdom of Norway
Moderated by:
Annie Medaglia
Deputy Director, Global Energy Center
Atlantic Council

Welcome remarks by:
Damon Wilson
Executive Vice President
Atlantic Council

Norway could potentially supply Europe with gas for decades to come, which would help diversify the energy market, and strengthen European’s energy security. Additionally, gas has the benefit of offering cost efficient CO2-emission reductions. His Excellency Tord Lien will elaborate on this and more, such as the benefits of gas in a lower carbon future, how well-functioning energy markets in Europe are crucial for the transition to a cleaner energy system with robust security of supply, and prospects for Norwegian gas.  We hope that you will be able to join us for this timely discussion.
